The Andrew Latta-trained Doubleubee made an encouraging debut in the five-year-old geldings’ maiden at Courtown to finish second under Barry O'Neill. The son of Yeats put in a fine display of jumping throughout, running well for much of the race until tiring slightly in the closing stages to finish behind Five Star Getway. A half-brother to the sale topper Stilletto, who won his debut point for Latta back in 2014, before being purchased by Roger Brookhouse for €130,000. The gelding is also a half-brother to the Willie Mullins-trained winner Small Farm. Owned by William Powell-Harris, Doubleubee is sure to improve for this experience and could well develop into a smart performer under rules.
